STILL REFLECTING ON SUCCESSFUL WRITING

READING IS CENTRAL TO WRITING

I argue that, at the core of writing, is the art of engaging with other authors through reading. This means that it is very important not only to practice our writing skills, but also to get out of our writing-comfort zones, and explore other people’s written material through reading. This grants us the opportunity to interact with pieces of well written work, care-free written materials, etc. We get to a level, where we improve on our writing, when we are able to find gaps and weaknesses in written material, including our own written pieces of work. There is so much we learn from other writers, and other writing genres such as creative writing in narratives. This is about flexibility, which is also necessary for us to experience the diverse in writing skills that helps to polish one’s writing abilities.

Cheers,
